Journey to Empowerment: Women After the Taliban

In 2004, Zareen Taj felt urgency for making a trip to her country to explore the lives of survivors of Taliban massacres. The Taliban murdered men and burned homes and bazaars in an attempt to wipe out the population and economic means of the Hazara, an ethnic minority. The stories within this book are selected from the surviving women Zareen interviewed and present a unique window into the stories of many Afghan women.
